Penguins Swimming Lessons, West Sussex,  is a friendly, well-established swimschool, nurturing swimmers of all ages, backgrounds and levels to gain a skill, and a love, for life. Here are a few things that are important to us…


We are known for our nurturing, person-centred approach that sees every swimmer as an individual. We focus on the long-term, supporting each swimmer to fulfill their potential – whether that’s competing for county, training to be a coach, or simply being at home in the water.


We keep classes small and build relationships with each swimmer to make sure they are in the right class, at the right level, with teaching tailored to their needs.


We offer lots of fun opportunities for swimmers. Working with Sussex Wildlife Trust, we transform the pool into an underwater wonderland to teach snorkelling. Worthing Water Polo Club run taster sessions with us and we hold an annual swimming gala with Shoreham RNLI. There’s also synchronised swimming, fun water safety sessions and other events to get involved in.


All our teachers hold lifeguard qualifications. Lifesaving skills are a key part of our programme for all ages.  Our partnership with the RNLI reinforces our emphasis on water safety. One young swimmer even managed to rescue his dad, thanks to the skills he learnt at Penguins.


Many of our swimmers stay with us from baby to adult – some have even trained to become Penguins teachers themselves. We can spot vocation in our swimmers, too, and are proud to have kickstarted the careers of high calibre swimmers, including members of the Great British Deaf Team and the county swimming and water polo teams.

We do what we do because we love it, and we exist to make as many swimmers as possible feel the same. Where will your Penguins journey take you?
